My ideal capsule wardrobe

wardrobe staples 2
I don't know if this has something to do with the fact I am approaching my late twenties and 'attempting' to be more sophisticated, but I seem to be buying less clothes and spending slightly more on a few staple items.
Above are all of the things that I have or would have in my 'capsule wardrobe'.
Camel coat- This is something I don't have in my wardrobe but really want. Camel as a colour has been huge this A/W and I hope it continues to be throughout Spring. This Missguided one ticks all of my boxes, I loved the relaxed fit.
White Shirt- Timeless. Goes with anything...can be dressed up, dressed down. Perfect!
Black Skinny Jeans- I wore my last pair of black skinnies until they fell apart. The thing I love most about black jeans is the fact that you can throw them on with a nice tee or a shirt, a pair of boots and you look effortless.
Black Leather Boots- I live in boots....rain or shine. A good pair of boots will see you through any outfit and if they are leather they will last you years. These F&F ones are only £45, so you can look chic without breaking the bank.
Striped Jumper- For when you are in the mood to dress like a Parisian!!
Black Tote Bag- A good sized black bag is fail-safe. It is guaranteed to go with whatever you wear and tote bags are great for hoarders like me.
Turtle Neck- I cannot get enough of turtle necks this season, so much so I am dreading the arrival of warmer weather! Just like a good pair of black skinnies, throw on a turtle neck and you can look super stylish in a matter of seconds.
Lace crop- These are always handy to have in your wardrobe for throwing on underneath shirts and drop arm tops. They also look fab on a night out with a skirt or some high-waisted trousers.
Leopard Print- Because everyone has to own at least one leopard print item in their wardrobe.
Slouchy Tee- Perfect for lazy days and are super comfy yet cool. I have them in every colour
Silver Stacking Rings- If I leave the house without my rings I feel naked. I love how adding some silver jewellery can really finish off an outfit. I am after a Pandora ring for my Birthday, I especially love their birthstone rings.


  1. Love the camel coat, blue jean & white shirt look at the minute! It's so simple but works so well still!
    great post!


  2. That Topshop Lace Crop is gorgeous! I also love the look of that New Look ribbed roll neck jumper.


  3. So many good things here. You could make so many different outfits out of these pieces alone! loving the lace crop!
